ShiFen Theater Festivaling

The extreme drain I feel after a production makes me glad that I don’t do drugs… it would be too much to deal with on a frequent basis ;p All that tension, frantic energy, worry, excitement and elation that goes along with producing theater is drug enough for me, thankyouverymuch. I’m still feeling a distinct [...]

我的幸运52日记

07年9月份我参加了一个娱乐节目,可能你们听说过这个节目--幸运52。当然我知道你们都知道,但是我希望节目不是那么有名因为我表现得非常傻。平时自我感觉汉语说得还不错,但摄影机一照我脑子就频繁短路。 已经很长时间没有参加央视的节目了,想当初我可是央视的常客。这次去时我发现我还记得当年的几个化妆师,但他们没有认出我。这我理解,他们化过太多的脸,况且白人看起来都一样。开始的时候我非常冷,为了我漂亮穿的很少,那天真是美丽“冻”人。 那期节目里还有两个别的老外,喀麦隆的捷盖和加拿大的麦小龙。他们俩也很有意思。认识他们是《幸运52》给我的幸运52。我们的合影很好笑,一黑一白一黄,像一个宣传全球化的公益广告。他们俩很可爱,经常开玩笑,肢体语言也很丰富,两个超级活宝。整个节目过程中我一直在笑。如果你看过那期节目或者那期节目的照片一定记得夸张的样子。特别是我和麦小龙坐在小方桌前时我们彼此不停的开玩笑,像两个调皮的孩子。李咏一直盯着我们看。我不知道他是嫉妒的想要加入,还是在他看来我们就像几个在课堂上胡闹学生,而他是一个已有无耐的老师。 我没想到,,在数青蛙的游戏里我表现得非常棒。从一只青蛙一张嘴两只眼睛四条腿,一直数到连李咏都受不了了。记得我考上NCSSM(美国最好中学之一)时我的数学不怎么样,但现在看来我还是相当有才。我应该通知我的数学老师,他们肯定很吃惊。但是希望我的大学中文老师永远不知道关于这期节目的事。为什么呢?他们不是应该骄傲吗?不会!因为我把四年学的中国文化都记乱了。(对不起乐老师!对不起李老师!) 其实也没关系,不就是丢了一下脸吗?总之我还是玩儿的非常开心。而且节目之后我们还都保持联系。上周我还参加了麦小龙的新歌发布会。除了以上所说的,我还有另外一个收获,那就是我发现我的汉语还需要勤学苦练,所以我很快就请了一个中文老师。谢谢李咏给我这个现丑的机会。 ~柳素英 [ cialis levitra viagra vs | find viagra online | cialis 20 mg | baby on viagra | picture viagra pill | obtain viagra without prescription | buy generic viagra from india | viagra viagra nude | viagra recipe | buying generic cialis | research on viagra | viagra [...]

Roman Holiday in Beijing

4 North Gongti Beilu East of Lemongrass and The Bookworm 工人体育场北路4号 焦叶和书虫的东边 6586-3778 Walking up the wooden stairs and through the far too familiar swinging doors of the ex-Brown’s address, your average Beijing expat will be shocked, though pleasantly so, by the restaurant within. Like Alice in Wonderland stepping through the looking glass, arrival at [...]

在北京找不着北,不对,助手。

为了找一个合适的助手我已经花了好几个星期的时间。收到了近百份简历,面试了十几个人,到现在还没有结果。有两个特别好,但是一个要的工资太高,一个的父母希望她能找到一份更稳定的工作。为什么中国这么多人,找一个助手却这么难?当然对我来说, 这份工作挺好的。试用期的工资确实不高,但是过几个月,肯定会加工资。不仅能提高外语水平,还能认识很多有成就的人。这肯定对他(她)以后的发展有好处。我的很多中国朋友说,这里的人更在意眼前的工作是否稳定。而不愿意作长远的打算。 我也不是那种苛刻的老板。其实我听很多朋友说找好的员工不容易。何况他们还有专门的人力资源部,相比之下,我什么都没有。他们还找不到,那我呢?肯定是难加上难。 ;p [ viagra prescription uk | indian viagra | buy pfizer viagra in canada | viagra studies women | buying viagra in the us | viagra canada generic | buy real viagra | cheepest cialis | viagra tablet weight | who can take viagra | cialis alternative | cheap viagra online | [...]

However, time is awastin, [...]
